Met Office ETA10 supercomputer. The Met Office, the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service, began to use computers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. By the early 1980s, they had begun to use the CDC Cyber 205 supercomputer, capable of 200 million calculations per second. This led to the development of the ETA10 supercomputer by ETA Systems, capable of ten billion calculations per second. Photographed in October 1988, at the Met Office headquarters in Bracknell.
